I wore Klaralund to work today. It was cool here. Started out in the 40's with highs in the 70s so that's sweater weather in my book.

I knitted klara last winter of Noro Shinano. Bought the yarn at a quilt shop/yarn shop on 12/31/05. Cast-on and swatched on new year's eve then finished her about three weeks later.

I knitted the pattern pretty much as written with the exception of the sleeves, which were knit from the shoulders down so I could make sure the length was right for me. Many bloggers and KAL'ers at the time were grousing about too-long sleeves. Plus I tapered the sleeves a bit so there not as belled as the pattern, as written.

more later,

Very nice! I love how that sweater looks.

I'm laughing, not at the sweater, which is your usual well-conceived, impeccably-executed opus, but at the fact that in KnitBlogLand, headless photos are somewhat the norm.

Are we going to see this sweater at Knit Night?

Hi Jeri,
How did you get the colors of the sleeves so close? I am considering making a sweater with a bunch of Noro Silk Garden I have, but I am concerned about it being incredibly unsymmetrical. (A little bit I can handle, but a lot will drive me crazy.)

In regards to the comment you left me, the hat I made took just under a full skein of Koigu and another of Opal for the double knit hat. A single layer hat would take a little under one skein total, but would also be thin.

I did the hat on 3's, but might have been able to pull do 4's. At the time I didn't have any on hand though, and the denser fabric pleased me. If you do not knit fairly tightly though, you may be better off with 3s anyways.
